The Louvre declined to lend Mona Lisa to Italy Automatic translate
The attempt to return the painting "Mona Lisa" from France to Italy, at least for a short time, was not supported by the leadership Louvre Museum .
The five hundred year old masterpiece of Leonardo da Vinci, written in Florence, has been in France since the artist brought it there.
The Italian art history professor, Silvano Vinceti, who is currently searching for the last refuge of the woman who supposedly posed for the portrait, launched the campaign to return the masterpiece to Florence. His goal was to collect 100 thousand signatures in support of the return of Mona Lisa to Florence in 2013, just after exactly one hundred years after the discovery of the painting, after its theft from the Louvre in 1911.
However, Vincent Pomarede from the Louvre has severely criticized the idea. “Any attempt to carry a painting will cause enormous damage - it’s not worth the risk,” he says. The painting, he said, is now in an extremely fragile state, so you can’t even think about taking it out of the museum.
The picture left Paris only three times: in 1962 it was sent to New York, and 12 years later it was exhibited in Moscow and Tokyo.
